Coordinating Committee Welcome
For the last sixteen months, Our Revolution Massachusetts (ORMA) has worked to create a statewide grassroots model, governing structure, and secure State Affiliate recognition from national Our Revolution. In November, a Representative Council (RC) and Interim Co-Chairs were elected by our affiliates.
On February 4th, members of the newly formed RC came from every corner of Massachusetts to the first in-person meeting held in Marlborough, MA. The Council elected a seven-member Coordinating Committee (CC) to serve as leadership; and the baton was passed from the Interim Coordinating Committee (ICC) to our new leadership. Read more here.
